Awards & Accolades
Telecare is often recognized for its culture, innovation, and commitment to providing excellent services to individuals with serious mental illness.
Best Places to Work
Telecare has been recognized repeatedly as a Best Place to Work in the Greater Bay Area (California). We take great pride in this award because it is based on the anonymous feedback of Telecare staff sharing their opinions about Telecare and the one-on-one relationships with co-coworkers and supervisors that matter to them the most.
More than 85% of Telecare's programs have been accredited by the Commission of Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), an achievement that speaks volumes about Telecare's inclusive, client-centered approaches and our commitment to recovery for individuals with serious mental illness. We have received numerous commendations of excellence, the highest possible acknowledgement given by CARF.
